Obituary of Wendell Hall
May 8, 1929 - July 6, 2022
Wendell Hall was born in Detroit, Michigan, to Arthur and Emma (Eick) Hall. He was a graduate of Clarenceville High School and served in the US Air Force in Japan after World War II, where he became a sergeant, specializing in weather.
Upon return to Farmington, Michigan, the eager-to-learn Wendell attended several institutions of higher learning and became a teacher. He first married Joan Mackie and had two children, Timothy Hall and Susan (Hall) Hoelseggen, and later married his life-partner Kathleen O'Shea, who he assisted in her significant career at Detroit Edison. Wendell and Kitty took care of Kitty's brother Joseph who struggled in bearing the lifetime marks of his service in Vietnam, and also together adroitly managed a number of properties in Detroit for a number of years.
Upon retirement they moved to Florida, settling into the Perico Bay Club gated community which they enjoyed for many years and in which Kitty found a dear friend, Kathy (Deeder) Yanity, who cared for Wendell in his later years on behalf of Kitty. During his retirement years in Florida, Wendell enjoyed studying the Bible under the tutelage of TV-teacher Les Feldick.
Two years ago, Wendell and Kitty moved into Freedom Village, where she expired nearly two years prior to Wendell during Covid when funeral services were not possible. Kitty is survived by her sister Nancy Constantino of Fenton, Michigan, her daughter AnnMarie Scharf, and her son Michael. Wendell is survived by his brother, Douglas and his wife Judy and their children Rebecca and Kenneth; by his son Tim and his children Kristen, Anthony, and Melissa; and by his daughter Sue and her daughter, Marla.
